By: Gumstix, Inc.
Gumstix®, Inc., the leader in design-to-order embedded hardware systems, announced the release of AutoDoc, a new feature in the Geppetto® Design-To-Order (D2O) system. The AutoDoc feature creates free automated technical documentation with each hardware device designed and saved online in Geppetto® D2O.
Geppetto's AutoDoc feature provides instant detailed connection information for all modules in a user's design, including pin assignments, chip configurations and features, and links to manufacturers' technical specifications. Free AutoDoc PDFs are generated automatically from the most recent saved version of a user's design in seconds, delivering valuable information to developers, engineers, designers, and their teams.
"Today if you can get a kernel working with a board in a week you are a star, " says Gordon Kruberg, Gumstix CEO, "AutoDoc is revolutionary to the work process, eliminating hours of work in an instant, and putting all relevant technical specification information into one location."
A layout diagram, a 3D-rendered image, and connection and power graphs provide graphical representations of the design while details like bus addresses, interrupt GPIOs and included ICs are included in the module descriptions to help programmers get an early start on development. Modules are indexed by category and hyperlinked within the document, instantly creating an informative, easy-to-navigate user manual.
